In addition to these services, the role of the Dean of Students is to work with students, parents, staff, teachers and administration in promoting the academic, civic, cultural, personal and social growth of students.

- Contact parents to inform them of the situation
- Assign teacher detentions
- Confer with appropriate school staff (see list above)

When a disciplinary infraction occurs, the student is informed by the Dean of Students of the assigned penalty. Teacher Detentions, Office Detentions, Extended Detentions (3 hours), Saturday School (3 hours), In-School Suspension short term placement at the Juvenile Resource Center (JRC) and Out-of-School Suspension are the penalties assigned by the Dean of Students when students violate classroom and/or school policies. Office Detentions (1 hour) are held daily, Extended Detentions (3 hours) are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Saturday Detention (3 hours) is held periodically as needed.
It is with sincere hope that by working collectively with the student, parents/guardians, teachers, guidance personnel, appropriate school staff and the Office of the Dean of Students that we can best support your child here at Drury throughout their high school years.
